A Question for the Literati

I remember reading a poem in school that was a mashup of pop culture references, I'm guessing from the Beat era; sort of a precursor to things like R.E.M.'s "End of the World" or Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start the Fire." The only part I remember clearly are the last two lines:

Burn, baby, burn!
No deposit, no return.

Unfortunately, I'm blanking on the rest of the poem, or the poet. Anybody out there know what I'm thinking of?

Yup, that's just the problem; they're such popular lines that putting them into Google isn't useful because there are too many hits.

...Yeah! The first couple of pages are pretty much the songs I could list. And there's your entry tucked in there, too!
